Trip to lisbon for xmas and new years

by thebends

Hi all, my gf and I visited Lisbon last January and we're going back again this year for xmas and new years. We've already done Sintra and Fatima and would like some recommendations for what to do when we're there, specifically :

1. A good reasonably-priced spa (less than $50/person).

2. Recommendations for day trips outside Lisbon (reachable by bus or train)

3. A good restaurant to have an Xmas lunch/dinner

thank you very much :)

Re: Trip to lisbon for xmas and new years


Lisbon again, so lucky for you

can't answer you on the spa question, i supposed a spa right in Lisbon, right?

for day trips, take the bus to the Roman city of Evora (2 hrs. away), great place with plenty to do: museums, ruins, loads of great cafes and restaurants

or the fishing village of Sesimbra and combine this with Setubal and the magnificent nature reserve of the Arrabida peninsula. on your way there make sure to stop by at the wine town of Vila Nogueria de Azeitao

good restaurant in Lisbon to have christmas lunch/dinner: if it's open on Christmas day, the Casa de Leao inside the Castelo de Sao Jorge high above the city with the most incredible and panoramic view to be had of Lisbon

Head down for the impressive Brennan Theater. Over the years some of the greatest theatrical events in the whole of Europe have been hosted at the spot. Place is undoubtedly a landmark that needs to be toured while in Lisbon.

Re: Trip to lisbon for xmas and new years


So, where exactly is Brennan Theatre in Lisbon?

City of Lisbon

Squares - Pracas


Lisbon is full of beautiful squares. I have listed a few worth seeing squares in my "Things to do" tips, but there are many more to discover:
Praca da Figueria: Located just east from Rossio square, Praca da Figueira is home to a bronze statue of King Joao I. It is lined with shops and cafes and offers a nice view to the castle.
Praca do Municipio: With the neo-classical city hall, the small Praca do Municipio is one of the finest squares in Lisbon. It is situated just west of the huge Praca do Comercio.
Praca Marques de Pombal: One of the busiest roundabouts in Lisbon. It is marked by a central statue of Marquis de Pombal who was in charge of Lisbon's reconstruction after the 1755 earthquake. Praca Marques de Pombal can be found at the end of the Avenida da Liberdade.

Tagus (Tejo) river and its second bridge, Ponte Vasco da Gama. In front of Lisbon, in the other side of de river, there are a protected area where we can see beautiful pink flamingos! They enjoy to rest sometime here in their route to south... Others birds spent the winter here. In the Mouchão do Lombo do Tejo is the home of the royal duck.

Below Castelo there´s Alfama disctrict
which atmosphere was created by the Moors.

During that time it used to be an upper-class residental area but after earthquakes this area has been a place for fishers...

local diet

by arasnosliw

Portugal, the land of great wine, seafood, olives, and cheese. Fantastic food if you ask me. I'm not Portuguese, so I shouldn't take any offense when I hear foreigners complaining how bad the local food is, but I DO! Why? Because most of them are probably not eating the right things, they are picky, or they don't like seafood.

You will probably encounter steak and potatoes on every menu. Go to any restaurant, and almost the entire menu is served with french fries. This isn't limited to tourist restaurants; this is omnipresent. Portuguese love meat. Whenever I would go out to eat with my Portuguese friends, they'd take me to a local restaurant and then order a burger, or they'd take me to a steak house and eat a humongous slab of cow. Great if you are into meat that much, but I certainly am not.

Anyway, my point is that many visitors may feel that this is representative of local cuisine, but it is not. Try some bacalhau, fresh grilled sardines, queijo fresco, olives, snails, anything with duck, swordfish, any soups, pastries, etc. etc. etc. I am sure there are many more things I can think of that I am not listing now....
